New day dawns for pluckey's web
Motivated by Concentric Network Solutions’ closing of Chattanooga Online at the end of May 2011 (and thus the shuttering of the webspace I’d been using since, oh, 1995), I made the move this weekend to this new format for this blog and associated materials. I’m using WordPress self-installed on the new web host. So far, so good. I’m still filling in holes and repairing broken links, adding titles and fixing categories, uploading content and refining interfaces (most notably to picture galleries and other archives, coming soon).
A few glimpses at previous incarnations of my website. Here’s a Wayback Machine link to 1998. Then I simplified the look; here’s a link to 1999’s version. Then around 2000 I hit on the color scheme seen today, but still with an unrefined interface. I made some minor improvements (mainly adopting Blogger as my infrastructure), leading to this peek at 2004. And other than intermittent blog and picture posts, the website remained the same… until this weekend’s complete renovation. What are my plans for pluckey’s web? It’s a place to store what I’ve written, shot, created, thought; an archive of interesting (to me, anyway) glimpses and resources. Yes, I use Facebook for status updates and promotion and such; but I intend to use these pages for more in-depth coverage on the things I find important (or trivial — it’s just a website, you know). It’s all part of being a content producer: producing (and sharing) content.
The old website had accumulated 6,163 visitors since 12/5/1999
